OPENING OF PROJECT REMOVEMENT

Santorini Arts Factory presents the art project Removement curated by Maria vasariotou and invites you to the exhibition opening on Saturday 13.06.2015 at 20:30.

The art exhibition will run from 13.06.2015 up to 20.09.2015.

‘Removement’ constitutes a visual arts exhibition, which aims at interpreting, attributing and synthetically presenting motion or/and alteration, which characterizes a land, through the creative utilisation of mixed media. Every demonstration of change, power, reaction or/and alteration is expressed as an arrival or departure of a state, an emotion or a picture. The above action and energy is equivalent to the word ‘mobility’, which, in its turn, has numerous dimensions both conceptually and practically.

The island of Santorini constitutes a symbolic starting point for the project Removement, as the island itself constitutes an environment which is synonymous to the endless motion and volatility. The mobility of the subsoil, the transformation of the landscape and the formulation of the island’s shape, the movement of populations from the ancients times to the present days, but also the unprecedented tourist flow in recent years, make Santorini a place with apervasive sense of continuous arrival, departure, movement/motion and alteration/change.

Two solo exhibitions of established artists will be presented, Zilvinas Kempinas recognized by the Art Review Magazine as one of the 25 best, modern, dynamic and emerging artists worldwide, and the solo exhibition entitled «STILL” of the Greek artist George Maraziotis. Furthermore, the Greek artist Stella Bolonaki presents an in situ lighting installation entitled «Time Slots» and the video-art «Removement». Finally, Georgia Damianou, Olga Bogdanou, Anna Maria Samara and 29 students and graduates of the Department of Fine and Applied Arts of Florina, participate in a collaborative indoor installation.

Chris Kontos will participate as a Dj in the exhibition opening night. Chris is a photographer based in Athens Greece and he is also the editor of Kennedy Magazine. He has been collecting hard to find records for some years now and he has been mixing them together for many clubs around the world.
